Veasna lives with her parents, who are farmers. She has five older siblings, all of whom are married and live in other areas. She works at a local government office. In her free time she loves reading, writing her own stories, researching on the internet, and having discussions with friends.
When she was younger, Veasna had her left leg amputated below the knee. However, the residual limb she was left with was not suitable for her prosthesis. When using her prosthesis, she experiences discomfort, pain while walking, and soreness.
She came to CSC in order to have a surgical procedure in which her limb will be reshaped in order to better fit her prosthesis. Once she has recovered from this surgery, she will have much better functionality of her prosthetic limb and will no longer experience pain or discomfort while doing physical activities.
Veasna said, “I have had this pain while walking for so long. I thought that I could not get more surgery to make things better, but thanks to CSC, I think I will be able to get rid of my problems with my leg.”
